My bluebird box had four species of birds fighting over it this spring: bluebirds, house sparrows, chickadees, and Carolina wrens. The chickadees won (I put up a couple more nest boxes - bluebird family has already moved in.)

Spring babies and plants, oh yes, and also one dog vomit slime mold )

Finally getting a day off here and there to catch up with life (although not quite the break I was hoping for, since my volunteer coordinator resigned so taking over a lot of her duties and starting the hiring process all over again, hurrrg). Things accomplished: kitchen cleaned, carpet shampooed, laundry, grocery, and outside opossums cleaned out. Yet to be done: mow the grass.

It's been a really good month for monarch butterflies, at least in my area! Very heartening to see them after their lowest overwintering population ever.

Baby things and hey I found my own perfect birthday card )

The usual story - found out in the woods by a visitor, there are no nearby homes for miles, so most likely dumped, not a stray. She'll hang out in my office until I can get her a home or an appointment with the local rescue.

she was very shy and scared, until I brought out the string and noms )

Half an inch of snow last night, although most of it melted right away, and a freeze warning tonight - my daffodils are looking a bit frosty!

It was a good day to stay home - managed to catch a cold, so spent most of the day cuddled on couch with kitties, reading and watching tv and coughing and sniffling. And lots of sneezing! I half thought I might be developing pollen allergies, since it's supposed to be a rough year for them, but this definitely seems to be progressing in a cold-like fashion, and I was fine all weekend outside gardening.

more plants and critters )

Halloween has actually been rescheduled to tomorrow night in my area due to epic rain and wind - they're even talking tornado watch later on, so probably a good call.

My phone storage is getting full, so have some random pictures before I delete  )

Kettle suspiciously sniffing my second-newest resident, a yellow-bellied slider someone brought us at the park. Poor thing had been living in the washbin she arrived in in our office - we don't have anything big enough for her at work, so I brought her home last week.

Beasts and bugs and present! )

Noticed yesterday that Toast was limping a little on one of his hindfeet, and that he just wasn't acting like his normal chipper active self - vet today confirmed he's running a high fever, but couldn't find an injury or obvious cause (of course he didn't limp at all at the vet). He's got some antibiotics to see if that helps, and I've got him isolated in the bedroom to keep track of intake and output from the other end - he's been eating, although he prefers the regular crunchies to the fancy wet food I got him. None of my kitties really like any of the canned noms I've offered them, weirdos.

More pics - critters and plants, also slime warning! )

Benson went home for good with his new mom on Sunday. This is the most recent picture of him - kittens, comfy anywhere XD

I'm gonna miss the little crazy fuzzy bean, but so happy he's got a good home. Gandalf seems to be enjoying having snuggles without his little groupie butting in all the time :)

assorted critters and plants and some house stuff, and one tree tragedy )

Vet follow up visit today - clean bill of health, w00t! Eats moistened kitten chow, uses litter box like a pro, is starting to be more aware of everything and runs around and frolics like a little wind up toy.

if cuteness was measured in midichlorians he'd be Anakin Skywalker )

I has a tumblr! I haven't had much time to figure it out, so feel free to leave tips, point out fun stuff, let me know if you're there so I can add you or follow you or tumble you or whatever...

A few critter and flower pics for anyone who needs them today )

On the night before the biggest, craziest event of the year, a litter of baby opossums arrives.

They're huge! )
